president obama's budget by .7 of 1%? you're talking about is .7 of 1%. this argument is about .7 of 1%. why do we keep having this conversation instead after conversation about controlling spending, about really closing this gap or doing something else to really close this gap? i mean i just wonder why this conversation keeps coming to the fore instead of one that would solve the problem? to me it is about pitting people in this country against each other which is not going to get us anywhere. >> but, melissa, in the last year we cut a trillion dollars in spending. president obama is proposing cutting another $3 trillion in spending. we have not been able to agree on one dollar of revenue increases. that's the problem. and this rule is looking at what should be low-hanging fruit, an easy call and yet it is becoming a contentious issue. liz: only because it has become a contentious issue because democrats keep putting it out there to distract how big the gap really is and what it will take to really get there. christian, thanks so much for coming on. i always appreciate it. you make great po
